It has been six editions, over 30 music greats, thousands of audiences thrilled, African Legends Night is back with a surprise for the love for music.
After giving audience an outstanding experience of the music show last year, African Legends Night which featured Congolese soukous musician Kanda Bongo Man, Ghana’s finest Abrantie Amakye Dede and the lover man Charles Kojo Fosu aka Daddy Lumba served patrons with a variety of good music as food for the soul.
To give more, this year’s show promises to move a notch higher. What’s new? We are bringing the legends home, settling down a long-held battle of who is who. Ghanaians should be ready to experience the many music styles from traditional music to Highlife which many believe gave birth to new music genres such Hip Life, Afro-Pop and Dancehall in Ghana. All theses genres will be on the table of music for the soul to consume.
For many years, Highlife was the preferred music genre because it easily connects us to our culture and makes us unique in the world of music. Audience should not be surprised if some battle lines are settled among some legends when they take on the same stage.
Our music has come a long way and it is in the right order to celebrate. It is in this regard that African Legends Night event was put together to celebrate music legends that have contributed to the industry in Ghana and in Africa as a whole.
This year’s African Legends Night is special and you can’t afford to miss. One can say, after the Ghana 60 years on edition which put the icing on the cake and cemented African Legends Night as arguably the best music show in Ghana, it is just proper to raise the bar further.
“This year has something new and special. We are bringing the legends home. We want Ghanaians to own it,” said Ernest Boateng, Chief Executive Officer of Global Media Alliance (GMA), organisers of the event.
“Two of our great Ghanaian legends that we have never seen on the same stage for many years will perform. Their fans have been asking for it and we want to give it to them on the platform of African Legends Night where we create a platform for our music legends and to have close interactions with their fans,” Mr Boateng added.
There is never a dull moment at this event; some performances have been known to thrill music fans beyond measure. It has been also hailed by industry players as “simply the finest” music event. Every year, African Legends Night entertains over 1,000s of fans with soothing, exciting, danceable African tunes.
African Legends Night has played host to great music icons from Ghana as well as other African nations and has over years carved an event niche catered to people who have soft spot for local African music.
Past editions have included headliners; Ivorian Freddy Meiway, South Africa’s Yvonne Chaka Chaka. Hugh Masekela, Nigeria’s Femi Kuti, Kanda Bongo Man from DR Congo, George Darko, Amakye Dede, Ben Brako, Ghanaian ace Saxophonist Steve Bedi, Wiyaala and many others.
Event delivery has always been on point with no hitches and our music legends delivering their danceable tunes with patrons asking for more even when the show ends.
